Hello Grandma and Grandpa,
Beccie here. I hope you had a great holiday with family and friends. We had Elaine's 2 sisters and her great neice down from CONN. We enjoyed having them.
I wanted to ask you something a little hard for me to talk about. I was diagnosed with IBS constipation along with some other great things like fibro., chronic fatique and anxiety. I have had it for about 32 years.
I'm coming to you as I would if you were my grandmother. What I wanted to say is that I am just in the beginning a flare with the IBS. It starts out with alot of mucus with gas. (I also have gastritis) Sometimes it gets bad enough that I have to wear a diaper. My entire bowel system shuts down for no apparent reason and I can go for days without a bowel movement.
So here is the question. What do you think causes the mucus and is there anything you would suggest to make it stop and get the bowels going. Please don't say to eat alot of fiber and fruits and vegetables. You have to understand that my system shuts down and there is nothing there. Fiber is not the answer. I eat the same way that I always do and I haven't had a flare for about a year and a 1/2.
Yes we have bought a new home and moved and had construction going on for the last year and just had company. But, why now,?
Grandma, I need your wisdom. I am going to send this anonymously, but if you can please let me know when you respond.
Thank you, Beccie
